Dancing With The Stars Recap

Alfonso Ribeiro and Witney Carson danced a foxtrot Monday night. The two brought a combination of class and fun to the ballroom routine. However, it doesn’t particularly stand out as much as dances in this late stage in the competition should. Scores: 9+9+9+10=37

Taking on the Viennese Waltz this week was Tommy Chong and Peta Murgatroyd. Though he’s been shaky the last couple of weeks, the veteran comedian gave a solid performance, stumbling just once towards the end of the routine. Scores: 7+8+7+7=29

Per America’s request, Lea Thompson and Artem Chigvintsev did a samba while channeling sexy cats. Lea, taking the advice from the judges, made an effort to let go a bit more throughout the dance. But, »

Going with great news - rather than just a great performance - is the best way to start off Dancing with the Stars.

So it was a surprise when Lea Thompson - who looked stunning while performing some of her best dances - was named as the next hoofer to leave the ballroom. "I just feel really great.
